“A Growing Impatience and a Real Passivity”

Last night, I was at a meeting for our LEAP speech/writing Pride instructors.  In attendance were experienced, terrific English 15 and CAS 100 instructors, sharing their teaching plans for the upcoming summer session, as well as some of their past experiences. I was a little surprised when one of my favorite grad students got up […]

Why I Blog

At our recent Libraries Promotion & Tenure workshop, we discussed new forms of scholarly communication, including blogging.  It was an interesting discussion on blogging, youtube and more in academia, blogs as publications, and the perceived positives and negatives of blogging your research. During the session, one person asked the very pertinent question, “Why would you […]
